The Illusion of Separateness

The spiritual life thirsts for aloneness…and unity. In the depths of aloneness we become aware of the illusion of our own separateness…as a grain of sand on the beach.

“For myself, I have only one desire. It is the desire for solitude. To disappear into God, to be submerged in his peace, to be lost in the secret of his face.” Thomas Merton

a grain of sand

 

La vida espiritual está sedienta de soledad…y unidad. En la profundidad de la soledad tomamos consciencia de la ilusión de la separación de seres…como un grano de arena en la playa.

“En cuanto a mi mismo, tengo un solo deseo. Es el deseo de soledad. De desaparecer en Dios, de estar sumergido en su paz, de perderme en el secreto de su cara.” Thomas Merton
